A new image released by Google may reveal news about Android P
Google looks set to reveal more news about its blockbuster Android P upgrade in the coming weeks.
The search giant’s yearly I/O developers conference gets underway next month and it’s likely that more details about this major Android software update will be announced during the big event.
However, new images released online may give fans their biggest hint yet at what’s to come.
The downloadable wallpapers, which have just been revealed by Google, feature a colourful spring theme with bikes, kites and flowers.
But one of the pictures, which shows an ice lolly, has attracted plenty of attention and got rumours flying around the web that Google is teasing its next release early.
With the tech firm always following its sweet-themed naming conventions some are speculating that the next version of Android might be called Popsicle.
There’s no confirmation if this is true and we’re guessing the only reason why this name could cause some controversy is that the Popsicle brand is mainly targeted at a US and Canada market.

We’ll find out more in the coming weeks but some lucky developers are already getting a taste of Android P.
Google has just pushed-out a preview of its next version of Android which appears to bring a slew of new changes to the operating system.
One of the headline features in Android P is the in-built support for notch-style displays, like the iPhone X.
Google has included a number of pre-set notches to house the sensors at the top of the edge-to-edge display.
The developer preview will enable app creators to test how their software performs on displays with this design quirk.

Another headline design change is the use of rounded corners in the Quick Settings panel and notification dropdown.
Notifications from messaging apps will now include a preview of the last message sent in the conversation – and enable users to send a reply direct from the notification.
Google has also improved Autofill, which should make it easier for password managers and other third-party apps to enter your password.
Google is widely-tipped to announce more features during its annual developer conference, Google IO.
